Excerpt from Kitchen Island With Storage Add Space And Much More :
Even smaller kitchens can accommodate small islands as long as you make sure that you have plenty of room to move around the island while you're working. A rule of thumb says you need 4' of space between the island and kitchen cabinets and appliances on all sides. That may not be feasible for you, but don't try to cut your travel space down too far, because it will probably cause congestion. One solution to having an island in a smaller space is to install one with pull-out shelves that will give you the extra work space you need it and can then be pushed in to not take up as much room.
If you have an older home where there just isn't any room to build in a dishwasher, you'll find that a kitchen island with storage will provide you space where you can put one with no problems of door clearance. Maybe you will want to add pull-out bins for trash and compost materials, lots of extra counter space, a wine cooler, or a pull-up shelf to house your stand mixer. You will find different models of pre-built kitchen islands in about as many configurations as you can think of, and many of them are on casters so that you can move them around if necessary. Stationary islands are also available and can be built in so that there's no chance of them moving.
